Are You Looking For The Best Electricians In Your Area?

I can help! I am a General Contractor from a construction services company. I want to give you some great tips I have learned over the years for hiring electricians. I know finding the wrong one can be a very costly and unsafe decision. I know first-hand that hiring an electrician who was supposed to be qualified but ended up being a scam can really affect your project and your wallet. Below are some great tips to keep in mind when hiring electricians.

Tip 1: Do the particular electricians guarantee that their work will meet local & national electrical codes? When you hire an electrician it is wise to ask if they are educated on local and national electrical codes. The worst thing that happens is having an electrical project finished and then undoing it because it doesn’t meet the local and national codes and laws. I personally have had jobs that did not meet codes. The result was spending a lot more time and money making it right. That’s why they hire inspectors. Inspectors are given the authority to deny or stop work if it doesn’t meet the code. More here: Residential Electricians in San Antonio
Tip 2: Do The Particular Electricians Provide a Warranty? Good electrical contractors will provide you with a warranty on the work they do in case problems arise down the road. If you’re looking for electricians, then ask them if they will provide a warranty for the work they do. I was once debating between two electrical contractors to do some underground electrical work for me. The decision came down to how long the warranty was good for. Guess who got the job?

Tip 3: Are The Particular Electricians Licensed? It is important the electricians are licensed because then you can be assured that they have been educated properly. Most States and localities require electricians to be licensed. Although licensing requirements vary from State to State, electricians usually must pass an examination that tests their knowledge of electrical theory, the National Electrical Code, and local and State electric and building codes. Electrical contractors who do electrical work for the public, as opposed to electricians who work for electrical contractors, often need a special license. In some States, electrical contractors need certification as master electricians. Most States require master electricians to have at least 7 years of experience as an electrician or a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering or a related field.

Tip 4: Do The Particular Electricians Provide Free Estimates? There is nothing worse than having a contractor come out to look at your project and then charge you for an estimate. It is standard to have a free estimate, so don’t pay for one. When looking for electricians you should always invite them to see what your project entails and to provide you with an estimate for the work to be done. Ask them if they offer free estimates before they even come over.

ip 5: Do The Electricians Have Any REAL Reviews or Testimonials About Their Service? Before you hire electricians, check out their reviews online. This can be tricky because there are certain places that enable the actual owners to write reviews for themselves and inflate their value. I would suggest 3 different places before calling any contractor to see if they have reviews for you to read.
1. Angies List- They monitor the reviews being written about certain
companies so they aren’t faked
2. Google Places- Type in a particular company into Google and see
if they have user-generated reviews for their places listing.
3. Service Magic- This website will prescreen contractors to be listed
in their database.

Tip 6: Do not pay your electricians in full until the job is completed and has passed inspections from a licensed inspector in your area. Be sure not to pay your electricians. This will help you because some contractors like to mysteriously disappear once they have all their money in hand. Set up an agreement with them to pay in thirds. One-third at the beginning, one-third at the middle of the project, and the final third once everything is finished. Most well-respected electricians will have no problem doing this as they know keeping you happy could mean a lifetime customer and referrer.

Steps I would take to find electricians:
Step 1: Search for genuine customer reviews (try Google Places.)
Step 2: Call Service Magic to help you or check out Angies List (greatly increases the chance of hiring electricians.
Step 3: Make a list of 3 possible candidates (must be licensed, must have good reviews, must have the capacity to handle your project and must provide a warranty.)
Step 4: Have each candidate provide you with a free estimate,
Step 5: After meeting with all three, knowing they meet your criteria, pick the contractor that gives the best price and passes your instinct test.

Pest Control – Honey Bees

This Blog was posted for you By Your San Antonio Pest Control Services – Jenkins Pest and Lawn

Honey Bees

Honey bees (or honeybees) are a subset of bees in the genus Apis, primarily distinguished by the production and storage of honey and the construction of perennial, colonial nests out of wax. Honeybees are the only extant members of the tribe Apini, all in the genus Apis. Currently, there are only seven recognized species of the honeybee with 44 subspecies, though historically, anywhere from six to eleven species have been recognized. Honeybees represent only a small fraction of the approximately 20,000 known species of bees. Some other types of related bees produce and store honey, but only members of the genus Apis are true honeybees.

As in a few other types of eusocial bees, a colony generally contains one queen bee, a fertile female; seasonally up to a few thousand drone bees or fertile males; and a large seasonally variable population of sterile female worker bees. Details vary among the different species of honey bees, but common features include:

All honey bees live in colonies where the workers will sting intruders as a form of defense, and alarmed bees will release a pheromone that stimulates the attack response in other bees. The different species of honey bees are distinguished from all other bee species (and virtually all other Hymenoptera) by the possession of small barbs on the sting, but these barbs are found only in the worker bees. The sting and associated venom sac of honey bees are also modified so as to pull free of the body once lodged (autotomy), and the sting apparatus has its own musculature and ganglion, which allow it to keep delivering venom once detached. The worker dies after the sting is torn from its body. Despite common belief, it is the only species of bee to die after stinging. [clarification needed] But if left undisturbed, after stinging through human skin, for example, a honey bee will slowly rotate, effectively unscrewing its sting, and fly away intact.

Bees are one of the hardest-working creatures on the planet. Working incessantly for their queen to keep the colony active, bees never stop moving and producing, cleaning and building. While most sightings can go smoothly, a bad encounter with an angry swarm of interrupted or threatened bees can be deadly.

Bee swarms are common close to a hive. They buzz around collecting nectar from nearby flowers and bring it back to the colony.

It is important to remember bees are not out to attack people. They generally just buzz on by while foraging for pollen. They do not mind being in close proximity to humans as long as they are not bothered.

To avoid getting attacked by bees, one should never swat or threaten a bee. The reason for some swarm of bee attacks is due to the release of a pheromone a threatened bee will emit. This pheromone sends a distress signal to all other bees in the area and will attract the whole swarm to come in and defend them.

The most common reason a swarm of bees attacks would be if their hive is threatened. Under no circumstances should anyone who is not a professional come close to a beehive. A whole swarm of defensive bees may attack if their home feels threatened. All the bees in a hive answer to their queen, and since she lives in the hive, a swarm will attack anyone who comes too close for comfort.

The bottom line and best advice to avoid a swarm of bees attack are to never make a bee feel threatened. Bees attack in swarms because they are a loyal team with one goal, and that is to make the queen happy.
